If you aren't already playing in the group, come sing along as we usher in the Christmas Season. It's free, and there are scores available for checkout.
Our annual Christmas Party is NEXT WEEK, December 14th, after rehearsal.
Bring a food item to share. We need several more people to bring "protein" offerings, hot or cold, so we don't end up with only sugar.
Have a look at the volunteer spreadsheet at this link to sign up for protein offerings, set up, and clean up. (If the spreadsheet doesn't work for you, just reply to this email and I will add you to the list on there.)
We will also do a white elephant gift exchange "game", with more info coming this Saturday!
Recital Night, January 11th
This is a great performance opportunity!
Be thinking about if you would like to perform. It can be solos or small groups, and it will be in the Brigham City Tabernacle, January 11th, 2020, at 6:30 pm.
We especially invite those who performed in the concerto auditions, but the program is open to anyone in the orchestra who would like a performance opportunity. We have also had a parent perform before, and alumni of the orchestra.
--You will need to provide your own accompanist.
